Dimmed Lights

Whiskers, blonde and foamy
telescopic pint glass hardly taps
busy ancient movie poster tackily
posted askant a billboard mirror
tilting vaguely
to reinforce each patron’s confidence.

Dimmed lights, bulbs lost
buried in a garden filled with butts
and slivers of glass
from some night’s failed negotiations
language blurs in direct proportion
to sobriety.
